THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR FIRST ANNUAL BOSTON RACE TO STOP GLOBAL WARMING!

The Race ended on September 14, 2002.

September 14, 2002 - On a warm and cloudless fall morning, nearly 700 runners and walkers gathered at the Wells Avenue Office Park in Newton for the First Annual Boston Race to Stop Global Warming.

With Newton Mayor David Cohen, Cambridge Mayor Michael Sullivan, Cambridge Vice Mayor Henrietta Davis, and DEP Commissioner Lauren Liss participating, racers enjoyed a beautiful USATF certified 8K and 5K road race that wound its way through some of Newton's finest neighborhoods.

8K Overall Winners:

  • MICHAEL MCGRANE of NEWTON with a time of 26:48 (5:22/mile)
  • MICHELLE LAUTERBACK of NEWTON with a time of 32:05 (6:25/mile)

Upon crossing the finish line, racers had the opportunity to enjoy the music and hands on educational opportunities provided by Massachusetts Technology Collaborative's Smart Energy Expo. Sponsors and exhibitors challenged the imagination with a myriad of information, while Dr.Awkward's music filled the air - a perfect event for families and friends.

In addition, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) presented their first Climate Change Action Leadership Award to Massachusetts Governor Jane M. Swift - Gina McCarthy, Assistant Environment Secretary for Pollution Prevention and Environmental Technology was on hand to accept.

Congratulations to all who crossed the finish line.

We greatly look forward to building upon our quick start in 2003.
